BARRICADES BARRED POLICE TEETH ONLY SMILES, HANDSHAKES POOR PROTEST LETTERS TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

BARRICADES BARRED POLICE TEETH ONLY SMILES, HANDSHAKES POOR PROTEST LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ¥ AST October in the ^ notoriously con servative State of Vic toria, a virile Students Action Group was formed. Its unifying policy was one of ex pressing protest against the White Australia policy. Whether this was right or wrong I am not going to say, but at least it drew people's attention to considering such vital issues as the White Australia policy. .Personally. I regard it as one of the duties of university students to arouse public opinion and perhaps protest about politica^ issues. Bearing in mind the activity of students in other universities, partic ularly last October, I can not help being down hearted by last month's incident when Mr. Menzies visited Bruce Hall. It is hard to decide whether it was a demonstration or a warm-hearted welcome. However prior to the occasion I was under the impression that it would be a demonstration putting forward a firm and decisive protest, and indee...

INGMAR BERGMAN RIVALS ALAN WALKER IN SYDNEY CINEMA A Letter from Sydney, by Donne Anderson [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

INGMAR BERGMAN RIVALS ALAN WALKER IN SYDNEY CINEMA A Letter from Sydney , by Donne Anderson VES, Neil, the Orto *? lans were delight ful and the Chambertin perfect. Poor Sydney, I know, cannot boast anything comparable to the assault of some 90,000 acolytii of the Adelaide Muses, but we do have a few things stirring on the Kul chural Front. At the 'Gala'' theatre, where people go to see and be obscene, Ingmar Berg man's film 'The Seventh Seal' is searing its sombre way into people's imagin ations. The title is taken from the Book of Revel ations, in which the Lamb opens the Seventh Seal, thus bringing about the Day of Judgment. The action oh what might be this day is set in mediaeval Sweden — Bergman has a passion for Mediaevalism — which is under a plague; the Black Plague, no doubt. As Fear gains power over the ignorant people, so do ' the forces of Blindness and Terror! that is, the Church. Through this injured and injuring culture rides a Knight (a Believer, who craves Knowledge...

WHY NOT BE LACKING IN VENOM LIKE EVERYONE ELSE? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

WHY NOT BE LACKING IN VENOM LIKE EVERYONE ELSE 9 THE School of General Studies is mainly identifiable by its characterless ^buildings and the prevailing mood of conformity- — ridden, terrified mediocrity. The total of the average undergraduate's ambition is to avoid offending anyone at all at any time, in any place, in any way. Any sacrifice of char acter, independence, eccen tricity or the right to be different is justified on the grounds of escaping notice and comment, while any action or thought which might bring actual critic ism must be avoided like the plague. Here the dominating attitude is that we must conform to the standards of the society in which we happen to' live. Here there is a total absence of any feeling of arrogance and confident criticism of society, no feeling of be ing above the mass of the population. We want only to apolo gise for anything we might possibly do to offend and vanish, chameleon - like, into the texture and pat tern of orthodox behaviour and beli...

ALISTAIR DAVIDSON IN ROME Bella Figura' is all you need to know [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

ALMSTAIR DAVIDSON IN ROME 'Bella Figura9 is all you need to know THE Via Barberini is brassy and noisy at five o'clock. The crowds 'Facendo una passegrata' are well dressed and their voices are empty and affected. Life is boredom. The gleaming Lancias and Fiats race up the hill towards the Tritons and that most cosmopolitan of bars, Doneys. There immaculately dressed young Italians gaze through sunglasses avidly at the bland foreign women's sexual assets with subtle evocativeness. But the street is a false front — twenty yards be hind it are the walls of the Campidoglio and within those walls are sweat-shops — seamstresses work there — seventeen hours a day. Many are deformed; they speak differently. For them life is work. Work is a dusty low ceilinged room with only naked bulbs to make ridiculous shadows on the dripping walls. The beautiful window displays on the Barberini put on a good face to the outside world. This is the bella figura which so de stroys the standards of the many...

FLAMES PURIFY THE FUGITIVE KIND [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

FLAMES PURIFY THE FUGITIVE KIND Tennessee Wil liams is regarded by some critics as the best playwright at pres ent writing in English. What even his fiercest detractors cannot deny is his craftsmanship. The cynical critic ad mits his craftsmanship not so much as a dram atist, but rather as a judicious mixer of the sensational and the popularly horrible into a sure box-office attrac tion, at least for a cer tain type of audience. A feature of Tennessee Williams' plays is the lay ing bare of overgrown psychoses and neuroses nurtured by the hot-house atmosphere of the Southern States of the U.S.A. — the Deep South. 'Orpheus Descending' gives another strong blend of powerful characterisations in the same setting. Perhaps the only satisfactory classifica tion of 'Orpheus Descend ing' is that it is a serious play. Tragedy is too weighty a term for it. Ad mittedly there is a sense of waste which merges into dramatic irony, as the audience realises at once the way out of the tragic climax, ...

How the owl grew a big belly [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

How the owl grew a big belly ONCE upon a time when fairies were more common than they are now, there was a country just across the border from the Land of Fairies and people called it Bird land — after its many inhabitants. Now, everything in Birdland was lovely — the beds were soft and downy, the food or 'grub' as they say in the vernacular, was of the highest quality, and everyhirdy was nice to everybirdy else. And it so happened one perfectly splendid Satur day afternoon just as some pure white clouds with marshmallow tint floated breathlessly across the blue fields of heaven, and gentle sunbeams kissed the bulg ing beaks of birds, so tiny, soft-voiced, young and gay — that the Right Dis honourable Sir Booby Owl — the Air Marshal ..of Birdland — was stopping over at Birdland Nursery for a cup of tea. But all was not well at Birdland Nursery, as was obvious from even the most sneaky of glances at the 'letters to the editor' column of the 'Daily Warbler'. For the 'angries' of Birdl...

P. Peiitoiiy | again pan drill plaintively I THIS year, for the first time, the Science Faculty | boasts its own library. This development \y ill 1 be of great advantage to the staff of the Depart- J ments of Physics, Psychology and Geology, who § now do not have to leave the Physics building, to: § go to the Library. It is also advantageous to those | devotedly apathetic science students who consider | that the University consists of lecture rooms, the f Library and Bruce Hall. \ Admittedly this achievement has its disadvant- | ages — ? apart from providing 12 seats for more | than 160 science students; apart from the fact | that it is badly lit, has no stiands for bags or | coats, that its twelve seats are placed around two | tables, that its catalogue is tucked neatly out of f sight and that it is open for considerably shorter | hours than Childers Street section of the library, f there is the small point that there are a con- f siderable number of students who have no lectures f...

BRUCE HALL CANTEEN: LET'S HAVE SERVICE [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

BRUCE HAU CANTEEN: LET'S HAVE SERVICE rTHE change in manage ment of the canteen at Bruce Hall is cause for great regret. Last year the canteen was reasonably well stock ed to satisfy the day-to-day needs of the residents; it was open for business regularly at convenient times; and made a profit which benefited Junior Common Room funds. This year, owing, one suspects, to the administra tion's covetous glances at this profit, the canteen is being run by the porter. The new management has found the task a little more difficult than supposed. The times when the canteen is open for business are not advertised, and sleem to be generally unknown; and the variety of lines for sale seems to be very much smaller than last year. The latter inadequacy may be excused because the year is so young, but the former exhibits a gross lack of business-like approach. So it seems very probable that unless there is a great increase in the service to the residents by the canteen management, last year's suc...

Reader Suggests Authorities PUT 'EM BACK [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

Reader Suggests Authorities PUT 'IM BACK The University authori ties should be congratu lated on their forethought in providing a separate library for students of Science, Psychology, Ap plied Mathematics and Philosophy of Science. A few problems remain to be solved. Firstly, there are SIX seats provided for students and SIX for mem bers of staff. While we like to see equality of students and staff I really think that as the staff have their studies in the building perhaps some change in this could be made Part-time students, espec ially those studying Psych ology are well catered for. The library closes at 9 p.m. and if you have re served books for psych ology reports then you have to travel between Childers Street and the Physics Building. How convenient it must be for staff, but such in consideration is without precedent in this Univers ity. CANT STAND IT. III Honestly, I don't know HOW I got on the S.It.C.

RELIGION REACHES DAZZLING HEIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 1 April 1960

RELIGION REACHES DAZZLING HEIGHTS ONE thing that new stu dents will find when they come to the A.N.U. is that Religion is not a thing which you think about only on Sunday but an actively debated topic. They will also find that religious societies are in operation and most stu dents will be urged to join at least one of them. The NEWMAN SOCI ETY is the Roman Catho lic Group and caters mostly for Catholics. It organises study groups on the writings of the Church Fathers and holds Mass at regular times. Besides this the Roman Catholic Chaplain also conducts study groups for 'all thinking people'. While the objects of these groups may be good it must be remembered that .the Catholic viewpoint is gi^en by very able men and the majority of the opposition by atheists. The EVANGELICAL UNION is a very new group formed mainly of Protestants of what has been termed the 'low church'. The rules of the group are very rigid. E.U. has a DOCTRINAL BASIS and no person can be a committee member of E.U...
